1. You Got Beautiful


    from Lauren Orme Added 556 10 0

    Women’s relationships with their bodies is a fascinating and controversial subject. This film explores the topic through images of the body and musings of the mind, delving into women’s inner lives and outer form: two things that do not always co-exist as happily as they ought to. This film tells a story about eating oneself.

      from Deborah Price Added 49 0 0

      My time at the University of South Wales, has shown me that I wish to pursue a career as a Producer, as my strongest skills lie in communication, organisation and the realization of projects. However I do enjoy and am very capable at 2D digital and traditional animation, I have good drawing skills and enjoy producing concept and background art. I really enjoy Story boarding and Idea Generation when working with a team, and often take on the role of Director/Producer as I am a great public speaker and can maximize resources and organise a team well . The software I am practiced in include Above Photoshop, Flash, Premiere pro and After Effects, ToonBoom and TV Paint. In regards to the industry, I am excited and eager to work on any project under any role, in order to gain experience, I love meeting new people and working as part of a team. I do hope to see myself in the future as an integral cog to the Production of animation, whether it be Short, TV or feature length. During University I have taken on roles as Course Rep and Student Mentor, involving myself in many activities and gaining invaluable experience and training in other areas of life.

                • Two Fifths of a Second - Gemma Tremlett (Extract)


                  from BA Photographic Art @ Newport Added 22 0 0

                  “We live in time - it holds us and moulds us - but I have understood it very well. And I’m not referring to theories about how it bends and doubles back, or may exist elsewhere in parallel versions. No, I mean ordinary, everyday time, which clocks and watches assure us passes regularly: tick-tock, click-clock. Is there anything more plausible than a second hand? And yet it takes only the smallest pleasure or pain to teach us time’s malleability. Some emotions speed it up, others slow it down; occasionally, it seems to go missing - until the eventual point when it really does go missing, never to return.” (The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes, published by Jonathan Cape. Used by permission of The Random House Group Limited) Time is a constant we humans have always lived with. It now rules our lives. Clocks have become a part of our every day; they’re in every building and built into most electronic devices: phones, laptops, televisions. We have little chance to escape a life governed by the proverbial ticking clock. So much so, that some say, “time is money”, as though it is something that can be bought or traded. Yet, in the Clock Tower of the Houses of Parliament – often mistakenly referred to as Big Ben – time is kept accurate through the use of pennies. Adding or removing a penny from the clock’s pendulum changes the speed of the clock by 2/5th of a second per day. Big Ben, standing at the centre of our busy metropolitan capital, has come to represent many things. This monument has become both a well-known landmark and symbol, not just of London, but also of British- ness. It has come to mean much more than just time; it represents tourism, politics and government. Yet this clock, that we rely on to mark important events, such as New Year and Remembrance Day, is kept in rhythm by the smallest and least valuable amount of our currency. Could this paradox make us rethink the importance of time? What is it we’re counting down and waiting for?

                      from BA Photographic Art @ Newport Added 20 0 0

                      Original Footage: 15 hours Exhibition Version: 1h 26 min Online Version: 20 min Human life is fleeting. Yet why should it be perceived as anything less beautiful? For does life's fragility and temporal limitations not raise its beauty and worth? Transience explores our complex relationship with the inevitable fading nature of life. This unavoidable progression raises a number of conflicting emotions within us, lacing the beauty and enjoyment of life with a foretaste of mourning. This film captures the fifteen-hour lifespan of a sculptural object. From the glistening of a water droplet to the decay and wilting of a flower, each moment is unique. Giving us a beautiful yet melancholic glimpse into the limitations of our fleeting life. The progression of this sculpture serves as a reminder towards the arrogance of humanity, that we are all transient, just like any other living organism.
